Mergers and Cutbacks!

By Abdulmajeed K Nunez

Oh you minister in charge of the people’s finances!
Please stop enriching your friends and cronies
Kindly review the tapes of the Cayo teachers' rally
Listen to Don Hector’s suggestions of saving monies
He suggested merging ministries and cutting back on ambassadors’ responsibilities
How are you so out of touch with your people’s realities?
Don Hector suggested mergers and cutbacks
To get the country back on track
His suggestion was to you despots
Who want to take the citizenry for idiots?

Belizeans must mount a counterattack
We the working poor are enduring the rise in tax
There is talk about merging Excelsior, Sadie Vernon and Maud Williams High
Teachers are of the opinion that their hands are tied
These nonsensical moves must not be allowed to fly
What so many people in this ministry so qualified?
If this is not planned properly we are sending our children to die
More mothers are going to cry

There is talk about merging Youth Cadet Corps and Hostel
When one is mandatory and the other is voluntary
These are dangerous moves by desperate ministries
Who are crying redundancy?
I wonder who are advising these ministries.
They are infringing on the right of the citizenry
Why must innocent children interact with children sent by the court for criminal activities?
Are we creating another criminal university?
Like the one being ran by Kolbe?
Why not merge the Hostel and Wagner’s youth facility
And remove those kids from that criminal university?

There is talk about redundancy in apprenticeship programs
One of the suggestions is to merge the Southside Success Project Center with the Apprenticeship Program
They clearly do not share Dianne Finnegan’s vision
Who is catering for a more mature population?
I am sure there was not adequate consultation
UNDP has not yet signed off on the Success program
Just desperate ministers giving misdirection
Giving misinformation, going by figments of their imagination
Where is the monitoring and evaluation
Most ministries do not have this mechanism in their programs
Thank God the UNDP has not signed off on that center
They have been successful in catering for fourteen year olds who are underserved
When will you all start giving youths what they deserve?
